A man who knocked to the ground a woman out for a walk on the Greenway Trail in Port Jefferson Station, covered her mouth with his hand and made sexual comments may have driven off in a dark-colored 2019-2020 Hyundai Elantra with a sunroof, Suffolk police said.

Police on Tuesday released two photos of the Hyundai Elantra.

The attack occurred at about 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 21, about a quarter mile from the eastern trail entrance, the police said.

The 54-year-old victim was not injured. Her attacker, who ran off when a passerby drew near, was described as in his 30s, 5'10", and heavyset. He wore a black sweatshirt with green sweatpants that had a black stripe down the side, police said.

Anyone with information should call 631-854-8652 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
